Supporters of a bill to require senior citizens to pay admission at New Hampshire state parks say the new fees could generate $300,000 a year, enough to operate four or five midsized parks. But opponents contend it will drive low-income seniors away. The House Resources, Recreation, and Development Committee held a hearing Tuesday on a bill that would require those age 65 and older to pay the same day-use fees as other adults, usually $4 or $5, or buy a season’s pass for $20. Senator Nancy Stiles, the bill’s sponsor, said that if New Hampshire is going to continue to require parks to operate on fees alone, it does not make sense to offer free admission to large groups.
